MARS READIES FOR OGILVIE RACEWAY
(October 5, 2017) Menomonie,
Wisconsin ace Jimmy Mars was in action in another late-season
WISSOTA special on September 29-30 in the annual running of
the 'Red Clay Classic' at ABC Raceway in Ashland, Wisconsin.
On Friday night behind the wheel of his father-in-law's Late
Model, Jimmy appeared to finish second in his heat race, but
was later docked two spots for allegedly jumping the start
of the race. He also won the Harry Hanson Lucky 7 Dash and
donated the $700 winnings back to Hanson. After rolling off
from the inside of the eighth row in Saturday's $5,000 to
win 'Red Clay Classic,' Jimmy stormed through the pack in
the 55-lap affair to earn a steady sixth place performance
behind A.J. Diemel, Marshall Fegers, Harry Hanson, Steve Laursen,
and Rick Hanestad.
In the WISSOTA Modified portion of the 42nd Annual 'Red Clay
Classic,' Jimmy placed second in his heat race on Friday night
and flexed his muscle throughout the $3,500 to win headliner
on Saturday evening. The popular driver known as the "Iceman"
battled hard for the second spot during the feature distance
before eventually settling for a fourth place showing behind
only victor Dave Cain, Jody Bellefeuille, and Jake Hartung.
Complete results from the big weekend at ABC Raceway can be
accessed online at www.abcraceway.com.
Jimmy will now turn his sights to the 'MTH Fall Classic'
on October 6-7 at Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, Minnesota. Two
separate, complete WISSOTA Late Model shows will be held on
Friday and Saturday in the Gopher State, as a $2,000 top prize
will be on the line each night. The WISSOTA Modifieds will
compete in a two-day shootout, which boasts a $3,000 payday
in the feature on Saturday evening. Jimmy once again has plans
to enter cars in both classes this weekend at Ogilvie Raceway.
